T stands for TRANSITION

Another example is
In addition,
Moreover,
Transitions should be used before any piece
of evidence/quote.
L stands for LEAD-IN

Lead-ins give the reader information about
the “scene” from where the quote is
extracted. It should contain both
 Speaker
 Situation
For example, when Rainsford returns to
Zaroff’s home, he says,
Q stands for QUOTE

Your evidence is a quote—anything from
the text, regardless of if it has been
“spoken” by a character or not. However,
quotes should support the topic you are
writing about.
For example, when Rainsford returns to
Zaroff’s home, he says, “I am still a beast at
bay.” (103).
What follows a quote?

Add one to two sentences of explanation
that shows the importance of the
quote/situation as related to your topic.
For example, when Zaroff suggested that Rainsford
go hunting he gave him no alternative but to play
when he said, “There’s always Ivan” (100). This
shows that Rainsford was acting in self-defense
when he accepted the terms of the game. If he
didn’t agree to be hunted, Ivan would have torn
him to shreds.
Example #1
Rainsford is guilty of murder because he
went to General Zarroff ‘s home and
confronted him after the “game” ended.
For example, when Zaroff congratulated
him on winning, Rainsford says, “I am
still a beast at bay.” (103) This shows that
even though the game was over Rainsford
wanted to kill General Zarroff.
A Most Dangerous Proposal


Create one area of
TLQ that defends
your position about
whether Rainsford is
guilty or not.
Your topic sentence
for this paragraph will
be Rainsford is
(guilty/not guilty) of
murder.

Give one/ Get one :
Go around the room
and find one person
that agrees with you
to help you complete
your paragraph. Write
their TLQ on below
yours and add a
closing sentence.
A Most Dangerous Proposal,




Share paragraphs with a neighbor.
Put a star on them if the paragraph format is
correct and initial the top.
On the bottom of your paragraph paper or the
back, reflect on TLQ by answering the
following questions:


What did you learn today?
What is different about this process compared to
what you did before? How is it similar? Explain.
Example #2
For example, before Romeo and Juliet got
married, Romeo had sent a response to Juliet’s
question, if he will marry her or not, by Juliet’s
nurse and Romeo tells the nurse, “Nurse,
commend me to thy lady and mistress. I
protest unto thee—” (1036). This shows that
Romeo loves Juliet so much that he will marry
her a few days after they had first met. Also this
shows that Romeo wants to marry Juliet right
away and he will struggle for it if he was not
given the chance to.
Example #3
Another example is when Juliet is
about to kill herself, she says “This is
thy sheath, there rust, and let me die”
(1098). This tells us that love affected
Juliet’s decision because she killed
herself because of her love for Romeo.
This also tells us that Juliet’s love for
Romeo is her will to live.
